KIT to make Reclining Shepherdess Picture
|Natural brown linen canvas (approx 20 ct), vegetable dyed worsted yarn & vegetable dyed silk thread.|
|Needlework area: approx 18 x 22 inches|
|Here's your chance to make an historically accurate textile reproduction yourself! The kit includes everything you need to work a traditional tent stitch picture using 18th century methods. The work is not difficult, but working the entire picture takes many hours. Pictures like this were typically made by girls in their mid teens during the 18th century--building both their skill with a needle and their perseverance.|
If you prefer us to do the work, we have a finishedShepherdess picture for sale in our Gallery.
|Price: $275 |

more about my Fishing Lady
I forgot to add that the fishing lady piece of mine was a kit from Kathleen Smith of Textile Reproductions in Massachusetts. I just went to her website and found that she still carries the kit. This is the info from the web page. She has lots of interesting textiles there. Check it out. Just google "Kathleen Smith Textile Reproductions."
